Frank Battisti came to NEC in 1969 to start the school's Wind Ensemble 
Program. Shortly thereafter, he created the Massachusetts Youth Wind 
Ensemble. He is respected worldwide, invited as a guest conductor all over 
the world, and he wrote the authoritative book on wind ensembles. He has 
brought many world premieres and famous composers to NEC. He is a ded- 
icated conductor, educator, inspiration and friend. It is with pride that we 
dedicate the yearbook to him. 



"Being in tune is like being 
pregnant... you are or your 
aren't. There is nothing in 
between." Frank Battisti

The Boston premiere of Dvorak's "Hew 
World Symphony" in 1893 was a light- 
ning rod for debate on the future of 
American music. Using the response to 
Dvorak in America as a starting point, the 
spring festival examined the pivotal era of 
cultural debate. — Reprinted with per- 
mission, Notes, Fall '98

"The topic of this year's Festival is excep- 
tionally resonant. We are dealing with the £ 
history of the musical life of our city, and our a 
school. We're looking at a period that was £X 
crucial for the future of American music — 
and which held out some promises that 
were never kept. We're 'reclaiming' impor- 
tant American repertoire we've lost touch 
with, examining the very identity of 
'American Music.'" President Robert 
Freeman, reprinted with permission, Notes, 
Fall '98
